What's Wrong With Fruitcake?


Captain Ed ruminates on the Christmas delicacy, and stirs up the usual swarm of fruitcake Philistines.

I happen to love the stuff, so it you receive one and look upon it as a giant hockey puck, send it this way.

Good ones at the Collin St. Bakery in Corsicana, Texas ("Gone to Corsicana, gonna pick a bale o' cotton), and at this monastery, so they say. I know the Corsicana ones are good, but of the monks' version, I only hear tell.

Collin Street is excellent, but you might also consider Mary of Puddin Hill, which is near where I grew up, and is quite excellent.
